Anyone with dry and sensitive skin knows that a good moisturizer is hard to find. It is because of this difficult task that I have moved towards using more natural ingredients and focusing on oils to help my skin get the nutrients it needs. Needless to say I was very excited about the Honey Touch body cream by Rituals as it has Indian Rose and Himalaya Honey. In addition to it being a rich and nourishing body cream it smells absolutely amazing. I don’t know if it’s because of my exhausting work week or the fact that after my showers I have been applying this cream, that makes me sleep better. It actually says on the Rituals website that this product “combines the ancient Ayurvedic ingredients Himalayan Honey, the perfect skin softener, and Indian Rose for its relaxing effect on body and mind.” So there it is, the explanation for my relaxing feeling when using this body cream, almost guaranteed to make you feel like you've taken a trip to the spa.

The other thing I will mention about this cream is that it wasn't as thick as I expected, which is a good thing. When I opened it up the white cream looks very thick, making me think that I would be spending a lot of time rubbing the cream into my skin, like SPF 75 sun tan lotion makes you do. However, I was pleasantly surprised that this body cream rubs into your skin quite nicely and makes it feel very moisturized right after. It’s almost the perfect combination: it moisturizes well, smells absolutely divine, and you don’t have to use that much of it!

I also want to mention that on the website it states that “Ancient Ayurvedic science shows that massaging your body daily (with cream) strengthens the skin and harmonizes the mind. In addition it increases the blood circulation, which promotes an overall skin glow.”

To be perfectly honest, I don’t know a lot about “Ancient Ayurvedic science,” heck, I don’t even know if I could say that word out loud. But, from my personal experience, I will say that using this body cream for the past week after my nightly shower has immensely helped me to relax before bed. And as we all know, with our busy work lives and on-the-go attitudes it can be very difficult to shut your brain off once the lights go out. But perhaps the lesson here is to take the time to pamper yourself a little bit. Believe me, I’m a very tall woman and deciding to apply body cream to my 6’2 frame is no small feat; but after witnessing it’s affect on my sleep, I have to say I’m hooked. The Indian Rose smell is incredibly relaxing that I almost feel like my mini spa session is needed every night, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

Well now that it's August, it will soon be time to transition from summer to fall. Sad, but true. I will try to hold onto summer for as long as I can, (we still have a few solid weeks of summer left), but I will need to start focusing on transitioning my summer products to fall products. Summer skin care is about sun protection (with a little sun tanning), moisturizing, refreshing products, nourishing products, etc. But as we spend less time in the blazing sun, we will want different products for our skin/hair care.

Weleda Birch Body Scrub 8.1.13Scrubs are a great product to keep your skin healthy from summer to fall. When the beach tan starts to fade, a gentle scrub will be very handy! If you have sensitive skin, you might shy away from a scrub, but this week I have one that might just do the trick! Weleda Birch Body Scrub gently exfoliates and smooths your skin. Some key ingredients are: organic birch leaves, vegetable based cleansers (great for sensitive skin), natural plant wax pearls, and organic & natural plant oils. These are skin replenishing ingredients that will help renew your skin, leaving you with soft, radiant skin. Weleda products are "no synthetic anything" - no synthetic preservatives, fragrances, or chemicals. Not only is that great for sensitive skin, but you can really feel good about using Weleda products. I often find it frustrating to learn of all the chemicals, and preservatives that are put into food and skincare, so I really take interest in brands that are dedicated to promoting a healthy skincare lifestyle. 

As for the actual scrub itself, you can apply it with a loofah or your hands in the shower. I just used my hands and massaged in a circular motions. It's not too thick so it's really easy to work with and massage into your skin. The beads were gentle yet still effective to get rid of the dead skin. It was in no way irritating and my skin felt extremely fresh and renewed! I also loved the earthy scent (maybe with a hint of lemon?). I looked forward to using it again, even just for the scent :) Another good bonus, this scrub comes in a tube instead of a jar - which makes it quick and easy to apply in the shower!

This is a great natural body scrub option at $12.00!

Looking for another body scrub? I have't found many that come in a tube like Weleda's (which I find extremely helpful) but I did find an intriguing body scrub from Angel Face Botanicals - Double Love Body Scrub with Himalayan Salt & Organic Lavender Essential Oils at $24.00. This body scrub will help improve the texture and appearance of your skin while also helping you relax with the pleasing lavender esssential oils.
